Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 80 94-99 100 Elite; 94-98 in 1st outing; 97-99 T100 in 2nd outing; routinely 98 in 2nd; plane and velocity is ridiculous; pitch has some run at lower velocities; kept everything down in the zone; impossible to lift when command is on point; solid command profile; would like him to come inside more often, but stuff will play no matter what.
SL 60 87-89 91 Present plus offering; good horizontal tilt; two-plane break; bottom can drop out; very tight spin; command was solid; not crazy movement, but velocity and late movement make it a bat-misser; would like to see him lengthen the pitch a little.

Closers potential without a doubt. The velocity is slowly creeping up and was already sitting in the high 90's in his last appearance. The plane on his fastball is ridiculous, and when he spots it down in the zone it's very hard to square/lift. Two bat-missing pitches in a small forwards body give him a chance to be a 9th-inning guy at the highest level.
